Re: wierd brakes after repair

you cannot just whip a grinder over the calipers?
the brackets that the calipers mount onto are specific to the hub/caliper, its probably a miracle that the calipers even fit at all.

can you see if there is extra(or no gap) gap between the inner and outer edges of the disc and the pads?
there should be at least 1mm to 2mm of disc sticking out beyond the pads ?

if they then fob you off with weights clipped onto the outer face of the rim, i'd bill them for a respray of the rims! and new correct calipers.

Spare parts available for 2001 Scenic 1.9Dci, 97 Lag1, 02 Lag2.
